Taking a Break in the 17th and 18th Centuries

GLI SummerNext week I will be at Princeton University for what is becoming a late July tradition.  I will be joining my partner-in-crime Nate McAlister (2010 National History Teacher of the Year!) for our annual Gilder-Lehrman Institute of American History summer teacher’s seminar on colonial America.

Over thirty teachers will be in Princeton for the seminar.  We will spend the week in lectures, lesson-planning workshops, tours of Princeton and Philadelphia (the latter with the inimitable George Boudreau!), cemetery walks (Aaron Burr! Jonathan Edwards!), and explorations in Princeton’s rare books collection!

Here are some posts from the 2017 Princeton Seminar.

I am looking forward to vacationing in colonial America for the week.  It will be a nice break from Trump’s America!  After all, they say that the past is a foreign country!

We do plan on blogging through the week.  Stay tuned!
